Bonifacio is probably the most interesting and picturesque of all the towns in Corsica. Any visit to Corsica should include a visit here. Lots of history and amazing setting. Very hilly so good walking shoes suggested. If you take one of the boat tours (one hour and high recommended - around 18.50 euro per adult) you can park for free for the day in the Promenade sur la Mer carpark just above the harbour. You can also take a 'petit train tour of the town if you don't fancy too much walking which also leaves from the harbour. '

Of cause Bonifacio is worth the visit, it is a legendary place with an amazing history! It is beautiful. Yet, you are indeed not the only person visiting - and parking slots are very, very rare. The tourist office proposes an app where you can see which parking areas are still available - but it does not always work, so be prepared for surprises, some desperate driving and searching and ... a lot of walking. The best solution are the parking areas in the harbour, they are rather large (you might have to wait for a while but turnover is quick) and the historic city is just a few steps (stairways) away.

Well-preserved fortifications to walk around and explore, especially the Porte de Gênes (where you can see where they operated the drawbridge). You can get some great views from the battlements too, of the port, Sardinia, and the sea in general. Within the citadel, the old buildings, cobbled streets, the chapels, shops and restaurants kept me occupied for hours. I particularly loved looking at the old door lintels and the religious icons in little wall alcoves. I took an early morning walk along the Sentier de Campu Rumanilu – well worth doing, especially at that time of day. The colours of the cliffs and the citadel fortifications reflecting the sunrise - just beautiful.

Impressive citadel perched on top of amazing cliffs. City itself not very spectacular but views of the cliffs, location and general feel make very much up for it. Would say one of the must-sees of Corsica

It’s a bit of a steep walk to get up there in the heat of the day, however it’s worth it. Lots of restaurants, bars and little shops hidden in tight alleys. Certainly worth a visit.
